A Real life “HBO Girls” Living Experience for $1500 p/m in Brooklyn

By

11th Apr, 2013

Secretly, a lot of us probably believe our lives deserve their own HBO television shows, but it takes a certain breed of superfan to advertise for a roommate on Craigslist promising a real-life HBO’s Girls living experience. So I thought I’d bring to your attention one such caucasian, 20s-something superfan called Hannah (yes like Hannah from the show), who ‘used-to-be-upper-middle-class-but-now-only-sometimes-benefits-from-the-wealth-and-status-of-their-parents’, has “the fashion sense of a homeless kindergartener”, and is now looking to fill the spare room of her three bedroom apartment in Williamsburg. Hannah currently shares the Brooklyn space with her other (gay) roommate who has a “penchant for backhanded compliments, adding the oh-so-needed bitchiness to a night in of getting drunk and re-watching 90s TV shows”. Jezebel’s Lindy West found the unusual ad posted just yesterday on Craigslist with a monthly asking price of $1500. As for the room: it has a window, and she’ll “send you photos or whatever, but they’re going to be instagramed.”

Find the full ad here on Craigslist.
